Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Passage: 1 Peter 3:19-22
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 58 secs

During the Christmas season you may find yourself wondering why it was necessary for God to become a man. Listen to this lesson to gain a better understanding of God’s amazing plan for mankind and the blessings that accompany it. Hear how Satan has tried to disrupt God’s plan and about one demonic attack that took place before the flood in Noah’s day. See that Jesus is our example of how to handle unjust suffering and hear that our prayer should be that we can know the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering.

Passage: 1 Peter 3:18
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 10 mins 3 secs
Have you ever considered what it cost the Lord Jesus Christ to die for your sins as a substitute in your place? Listen to this lesson to hear many points on the meaning of substitutionary atonement. See how the sacrifices in the Old Testament were a picture of this and how an innocent lamb had to be sacrificed. Learn that Christ’s death on the Cross was a victory which He proclaimed to spirits after His crucifixion. See that when we suffer unjustly, our example on how we should handle it is Christ who died once for all, the just for the unjust.

Passage: 1 Peter 3:10-14
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 56 mins 14 secs
You would never think of starting a raging out-of-control fire in your neighborhood, would you? Listen to this lesson to learn that that the Bible tells us that our tongue starts fires when we gossip, slander, and malign others. See that evil words that spew out of our mouths come from our sin nature and are destructive to us and to the object of our anger. Hear a listing of types of sins of the tongue, including lying, yelling, flattery, judging, and bitter rants. As we move on in this chapter we begin a study of suffering unjustly. Find out that we are always to be ready to explain what we believe to unbelievers.

Passage: Matthew 20:20-28
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 53 mins 34 secs
What in the world is the baptism of the cup? If you have only one idea of baptism, listen to this lesson to learn that there are eight different kinds of baptism in the Bible, three of which involve water, and five are dry. See that the cup of baptism refers to what is in the cup. Find out that when Jesus referred to the drinking of His cup, He is talking about His suffering on the Cross. Since none of us will die on a cross, understand that it refers to the unjust suffering that is part of the spiritual life of all believers. We need to ask ourselves how we handle unjust suffering.
